    The new iPod Touch will come packing a 5MP camera with HD video shooting skills, according to John Lewis which has just spilled the new specs at its Xmas in July event in central London. It detailed the new iPod Touch specs saying it’s based them on “noises we’re hearing from suppliers”. Click through for the latest details on the new iPod Touch…

    The rest of the John Lewis slide predicts the new iPod Touch camera will add a Flash to the 5Mp camera and capture HD video (presumably at 720p just like iPhone 4). It’s also promising YouTube uploading. Most excitingly, it claims the new iPod Touch will be the next device to come packing FaceTime with calls over Wi-Fi so it looks like there’ll be a front-facing camera too.

    Finally, John Lewis claims the new iPod Touch will pack in an accelerometer and gyroscope to further perk up its gaming credentials. This is all still speculation but John Lewis is one of Britain’s biggest retailers so its sources are likely to be pretty savvy. Apple is set to unveil the new iPod Touch at its annual iPod refresh in September.

    This is great,
    A camera with flash and facetime, really releases the true potential of this portable device. If Apple decide to change the backing cover from that terrible, cheap stainless steel which is a fingerprint and scratch magnet - then Apple will be on to a real winner. Maybe with the add on of a built-in microphone and the option of built in 3G Apple could easily fetch £350 - £450 for this device. But yet again, I'm sure it will be a long wait for a jailbreak ;D

    The gyroscope is obvious, people need to stop thinking every rumour is fake!

    True the gyroscope will most likely be in there, considering they say the iPod touch is a gaming device now. The whole camera thing - im sayin no, i never pay attention to rumors anymore. :/

    mostly.
    If there will be a camera, it won't be 5 megapixels. Expect 2 or 3.2.
    FaceTime might be a possibility because apple noted they will be shipping millions of "FaceTime devices" this year.

    What are the chances they add GPS for the apps that use location services?
